Austin's Fantastic Fest is back in action. The annual festival for genre films tweeted on Thursday that it's planning an in-person event this year.

The world premiere of "VHYes" at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar happened during Fantastic Fest on Sept. 21, 2019.

"PEOPLE OF EARTH! We're ecstatic to confirm that #FantasticFest2021 is headed home. Our in-person festival will run Sept. 23-30 at @AlamoDrafthouse South Lamar. You've got questions, and we're working on the answers. More to share in the coming weeks," the festival announced.

Last year, Fantastic Fest pivoted to a "celebration" instead of a full event, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 2020 event featured online screenings and programming, as well as limited in-person movies.
